American basketball player
In 1999 Seattle SuperSonics point guard Gary Payton was dubbed "the best player on the planet" by no less of a basketball authority than superstar Charles Barkley. Payton has won two Olympic gold medals and is one of only eight players in National Basketball Association (NBA) history to compile a career total of over 15,000 points, 6,000 assists, and 1,000 steals. Despite this, Payton, who has spent his entire career with the SuperSonics, has yet to win an NBA championship ring.
